he was projected to be a 1st round pick if he went into the draft his junior year. his stock dropped after his stats went down big in his senior year, finishing with 1 INT and 8 passes defensed. however that might have been because he was only targeted 14 times ALL SEASON. great stats considering the circumstances. we stole this kid, and if he can step up and land a spot on the starting roster he will be huge.
in college his draft stock dropped for being a shutdown corner essentially. isn't the definition of a shutdown corner a player that no qb's want to throw at, and when they do, they shut down the play more than half the time?
I hope you're right. We could use a good corner opposite Ike. If what you say about his stats are true, only target 14 times in a season, then I can't believe his stock dropped that much.
